AFI have officially announced their next album, Bodies, out June 11th via Rise Records.
The new record features 11 tracks, including the previously released “Twisted Tongues” and “Escape from Los Angeles.” The band’s own Jade Puget produced the record, while Tony Hoffer handled mixing.
The band previews the album with two new tracks “Looking Tragic” and “Begging for Trouble.” “Looking Tragic” is an upbeat, pop-rock affair with a big hook that’s sure to get stuck in your head. Meanwhile, “Begging for Trouble” is faster-paced and features a killer bass from Hunter Burgan.
Listen to the songs below.
“‘Looking Tragic’ addresses the theme of overstimulation resulting in desensitization,” says frontman Davey Havok. “Melodic and driving, the song came to life quickly and immediately stood out as a track to make bodies, if not sentiments, move.”
Speaking about “Begging for Trouble,” Adam Carson says “After years of receiving early versions of songs from Jade and Davey, in forms that span loosely arranged chords and scratch vocal to fully realized demos, I think I have become quite adept at knowing which songs will or will not make the record. ‘Begging For Trouble’ was green lit, at least in my mind, the moment I heard the vocals come in. To me, the track is a cornerstone of the new record.”
AFI’s latest release, Missing Man EP, came out in 2018.
